I've been crafting, BUT...

I can't post anything! Not until after the "reveal" dates, anyway. I've gotten two projects for Scrap Gypsies done and I finished a card last night for my newest gig:

I've been asked by Di Hickman to be a Card Sketch Girl!!!!

My first card for her will be posted next Wednesday (7/25). How fun and easy it was making a card from a sketch!! I should've been doing this a LONG time ago... thinking of the layout was always the hardest part for me, this took all the frustration out of the process - this must have been the quickest card I've ever made. Anyway, I'll post it next Wednesday.

I did want to post a project because I haven't posted much this week (I'm convienced my new blog is the most boring blog ever), so here's one I did a while back. I made this for Rita at Cropper's Cottage who helped me out with something so I wanted to send her a little thank-you gift.

I found this journal at Target (I was there yesterday and they still have them). It's 12" tall by 5.5" wide and has two sections - the front section is lined paper and the back section is grid paper. When I saw it I thought it would be PERFECT for notes and sketches of project ideas. I did up the journal with Fancy Pants papers, Heidi Swap chipboard letters, MM paint and added a flower, button and ribbon. I put "Details" on it because its for project details. Here it is:

Hope you all have a great weekend! My daughter's birthday party is this Saturday so it'll be another busy weekend! Her actual birthday is next week and I can't believe she'll be turning 7!!! Where does the time go?????
